We’re following College GameDay this week to Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon to watch The University of Oregon Ducks take on the Michigan State Spartans. Whether you’re traveling to UO or watching the game from home, experience a true Ducks tailgate with copious amounts of food and brews. If you’re not traveling with the team, catch the game Saturday, September 6 at 6:30 PM EST on FOX.
First, if you’re looking for a refreshing beer to start your day off right, stop by Ninkasi Brewery on 272 Van Buren St, and pick up a Believer Double Red Ale. Packed with a complexity of flavors in its profile, the rich, malt body perfectly balances the crisp hop presence throughout. The suggested food pairings to accompany this brew, are pork, lamb, pizza, rich creamy cheeses, and chocolate, so we have a perfect tailgating recipe for each! Click the picture for the Recipe.
If you want to experience true Eugene cuisine, craft this creamy Béchamel Sauce made with the Believer Double Red Ale. This decadent sauce come from the kitchen of The Sandwich League, and is the perfect addition to a burger, hot dog, or homemade fries.
These Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes with Queso Blanco Dip are melt-in-your-mouth good. Make tonight wrap in foil, and warm them on the grill tomorrow. To keep your creamy queso dip warm, bring a slow-cooker or fondue pot to your tailgate and you’re ready to serve.
While the grill is hot tomorrow, throw on these Grilled Individual Hawaiian Pizzas for an unexpectedly delicious meal at game time. Prep the toppings tonight, store in a zip top bag and bring them in a cooler tomorrow with your store-bought pizza dough.
If you’re throwing a large tailgating party, or not in the mood for pizza, Seasoned Lamb Kebabs are the perfect pregame meal. Mix the seasoning together tonight and store in a plastic container so you’re ready to season and grill tomorrow.
Last but not least, whip up this ultra-rich Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse Tart for a crunchy, fudgy, and silky-smooth dessert tomorrow.
